2nd Gmarket Haul ~ Headbands Galore!

Days after receiving our first order G & I ordered from Gmarket again! They just have too many things we want :D So guess what came in the mail a few days ago~ This time we spammed more hair accessories from the seller 루미네(Lumine), her accessories are of great quality and very pretty. They're handmade and have beautiful finishes. It may not be a great deal to lots of people, but all the care the seller takes to tuck ribbon ends neatly and make sure glue/threads aren't sticking out is really appreciated by us. It also reflects good craftsmanship and better aesthetic value. And despite our large order she shipped it out very, very quickly. So four thumbs up! Also ordered leggings (they were on sale! 1,900won each!), stationery, necklaces, but mainly ALOT ALOT of hair accessories!

This time round the whole order was shipped quite quickly! Ordered on Sunday and items reached doorstep on Saturday. However along the way a clothes seller cancelled 2 items we ordered. The annoying thing is that that first, the seller just cancelled one. And the other order was left on request for another few days. And after that the seller cancelled again. So the overseas shipment was pending a few days only because they were waiting for items from that seller. Oh by the way, one thing with sellers cancelling your items is that you lose credit points. ("What??" you ask. Don't worry, shall address Gmarket's credits points, gstamps, mileage, cash balance, shipping etc issues in another post soon (: so please wait for it~

And of course for us who have hauling tendencies, we had to squeeze our order into the cart which holds a maximum of 30 items, so we cut back on other stuff. And in the end when the seller cancels we feel a bit cheated because it feels like we could have ordered something else and actually gotten it! But at least we were able to get our other items really really quickly!

Part of my haul~ The yellow/blue things's a skirt. Not shown in the picture are a pink canvas backpack (with a cute white rabbit keychain) that G got from Lumine, a set of 10 mini multi-colored leopard-print bear keychains also from Lumine, 4 leggings and 6 other headbands (ahem Miss G!) also from Lumine!

Such lovely headbands. Of course we got more! In total we ordered 10! The yellow and the mint are called "Sherbet Ribbon Band" [샤베트리본밴드] in Korean. The pearly one is "Lorelei Band" [로렐라이밴드]. See what lovely names all the items have!

A dot chiffon hair pin and the sherbet ribbon pins in all 10 colors! Black, gray, violet, light pink, dark pink, red, orange, yellow, mint, navy. Each sherbet ribbon pin was only 500won, that's a steal~ The adorable little doggie was one of the freebies we got from the seller (:

A flower hair tie, also from Lumine~ The lighting is this picture is bad, doesn't do justice to how beautiful the coral color really is!

When worn, it's really a lovely coral pink color, I really love wearing it! Perfect accessory to spruce up an outfit or to bun up hair on bad hair days ^^

More ribbon bow pins, this time from seller 쎄핀. This seller has over 1000designs of hair bow pins to choose from~ And they're lovely and big and hold a lot of hair. Of course there are smaller ones too. I think she has 6cm, 8cm and 10cm pins. These 2 are 10cm ones.

Their width when worn~

So other than hair accessories we got stationery! Stickers and postits and cashbook were from the seller 스타일지존2. There were 16 sheets in this pack, all so pretty and great for decorating diaries, notes, letter etc. Can't wait to use them!

Cashbook and mini diary. Really compact and portable, with pretty pictures too! The Bonjour Paris mini diary is from the seller 바보사랑친구. (And so is the ubercute puffy pen below!)

Close up of the top of the pen. The fluff is a mix of white, dark pink and light pink, it's quite firm so it doesn't go out of shape. And below the fluffball is a pink ribbon bow with white polka dots. Love the detail! The body of the pen is covered with pink leopard prints ^^ The word on the side says "Lollipop" and yes, this pen looks yummy enough to be a lollipop. Sadly the ink only comes in one color, black. Would be great if they could have other colors like blue or pink ink!

The cashbook has a very handy ziplock which you can put your receipts in. This is just perfect for travelling~ The brand of the pen is Sakox, they have a wide variety cute colorful lollipop fluff pens! Not just leopard prints ^^ It's really well-made and I love the multi-colored pink fluff and the little bow ribbon detail under it! Feel so happy when I write notes with this~

Interior of the cashbook, so many columns for recording your inflow and outflow hehe.

Also got an adorable post-it set, they come in many shapes and sizes and have lovely designs of shots of Paris on them.

This is the monthly page of the Bonjour Paris mini diary~

Free gifts from 스타일지존2. The lipstick is actually a pen! How adorable is that? :P

So all in all it was a very satisfying order! Didn't feel like much though! Yes, I know, how many heads do we have? But a girl can never have too many hair accessories! ♥


  1. I don't think you'll be able to use those download coupons as most korean sites require you to have a korean id, or a korean foreigner id to register before you can use a site. The only site I know which allows foreigners outside Korea to download from is Soribada.

  2. @ anonymous ♥

    Hehe I gave up trying to use -.- Either there's a field for the Korean ID during registration, or after registering before inputing the code they require the Korean ID. Think I'll just pass them to a friend studying in Korea haha.

    So far I've gotten coupons for Qdown (naver), FileFarm, Filei, Sharebox and Ondisk...and they all can't be used/page won't load/site always under maintenance ^^
